More and more patients in the Tri-Cities are getting relief for their shoulder problems, knees, hips, elbows and spines from the regenerative medicine and chiropractic treatments we offer at Solutions. Even though this branch of medicine is still very new, help for acute injuries, torn ligaments and degenerative arthritis using human tissue allografts for the large joints is becoming more common, more available and more known. Now there are many top orthopedic clinics and professional athletes who regularly incorporate regenerative medicine for natural help with their knees, shoulders, hips, spine and elbows. Most people are unaware that this treatment is also very effective for the smaller joints too!
The joints in the fingers, toes, wrists, hands and feet also deteriorate just like their larger counterparts and also respond very well to regen med. While these joints have much smaller spaces, they often require less amounts of regenerative medicine. For example, the larger joints (knees, shoulders, hips) can easily hold 2 ml of regenerative medicine product, however 2 ml can be divided into several fingers, toes and the smaller joints of the hands and feet. So the size of the smaller joints makes them more cost effective too.
At Solutions, we see very good results with regenerative medicine and the smaller joints of the body. For the hands, patients with degeneration, weakness and pain in the thumb joints, arthritis in the knuckles and trigger fingers respond amazingly with our treatments. We also have terrific results with osteoarthritis in the ankles, foot joints and toes. Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs also respond extremely well with regenerative medicine and we are excited to treat many patients with these conditions. If you have problems or chronic pain in your hands, feet, wrists or ankles, call us and we’ll be glad to evaluate to see if regenerative medicine may be effective.
